About the mix:
We’ve all passed as something in our lives: assimilating racially, sexually, spiritually, and any way in which we weren’t ourselves. This is a rough mix, with the recordings capturing the mistakes, the break in our voices, the uncertainty in our paths. it’s meant to be contemplative and jarring, allowing you to feel the vulnerabilities in your identity–through melancholy, anger, joy. But our lives are forever being defined. Don’t go with the circle. Create your own dent and find your now.
Venezuelan, passing as American since 2000, but my census data says “human.” Lover of all things Latin American, North American, African, Asian, European, Antarctican, Australian/New Zealand, and all the lands that stand as their own. My work takes place everywhere, you just can’t see it. I feel all sorts of feels and hope to learn how to do so with others. TL;DR: new (radio) dj, pubic health worker, flawed human being.
